Detectors for Specific Explosives


ChemSee offers several unique detectors for common explosives and explosive precursors. All detectors use a simple color change to identify the presence of explosives on a surface or in a solution. They are simple-to-use, even for unskilled personnel and can easily carried in the field.

Detector Features

– Contain All Necessary Components for Analysis
– Up to 3 Years Shelf Life*
– Full Color Instructions Provided with Each Detector
– Instructional Videos Available

*If product is refridgerated during storage.
